Beer League: Is Miguel Cabrera Still a First Round Risk?

Posted by on Feb 21, 2011 in Baseball News, Fantasy Baseball Draft, Fantasy Baseball Infielders | 5 comments

Miguel Cabrera is hitting shots again. Unfortunately, it’s not the kind of shots that the Detroit Tigers would like him to be hitting. Late Wednesday, Miguel Cabrera was arrested on a drunken driving charge just 110 miles south of Lakeland where the Tigers are conducting Spring Training.  Inside the vehicle, Cabrera smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and took a swig from a bottle of scotch in front of a deputy, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office. He refused to cooperate and more deputies were called to the scene. This isn’t the first time that Cabrera has been playing in the beer league.  Late in the 2009 season, police said Cabrera got into a fight with his wife after a night of drinking, shortly before his team lost a key game. The Tigers then lost an AL...

Fantasy Baseball Considerations for Commissioners

Posted by on Oct 16, 2010 in Fantasy Baseball 101, Fantasy Baseball Draft | 3 comments

Being the commissioner of a fantasy baseball league is not an easy task.  The hours are long.  You often manage a bunch of crybabies.  And, the pay: it sucks. Hopefully, you’ll have the rules laid out so that there aren’t any disputes during the season that you have to rule on, but there’s always one guy looking for a loophole in the rules to take advantage of.  Of course, it is a game of points so why shouldn’t managers look for ways to maximize their points.  It’s up to you to create a set of rules that attempts to cover every possible situation that arises.  Not easy. Here are some of the decisions a commissioner needs to make when starting a league. PLAY FOR MONEY OR NOT? I always believe its a good idea to have a cash prize.  ...

If you are reading this post in October, it’s probably because you love fantasy baseball.  And, you plan on playing again next year.  You also likely play in a keeper league and/or an auction league, because these leagues simply have more strategy and more to offer a serious fantasy baseball player. Keeper Leagues Defined Most fantasy baseball managers play in a yearly redraft league.  In such a league, the slate is wiped clean every year and a manager gets to re-draft an entirely new team.  Its fun, and its the most common of fantasy baseball leagues, but it doesn’t nearly have the level of strategy of a keeper league. A keeper league, as opposed to a dynasty league, usually allows you to keep some players (as little as 3, but as many as 15) from one season to the...
